This week I met Hamish Edwards, co-founder of the fast growingXero accounting software organisation www.xero.com.
This is an impressive web-based accounting software which is simple enough for ordinary mortals to use. Available 24/7 anywhere on any kit that has an internet connection. ( Yup even works on Macs and ipads! – at last trendy people can access accounting software too)
But the biggest plus is that within a couple of months you’ll be able to automatically download all your on-line bank and credit card details straight into your software. Daily. Gone will be the days of typing up spreadsheets.
Also, if you’re a small business with no on-site IT specialists, there’s no need to worry about back ups, updates or changing legislation – eg new VAT rates. That’s all taken care of automatically. All for a small monthly fee.
Oh, and Hamish is very impressive too – a Chartered Accountant who got involved originally to help his own clients never dreaming it would go global .
Watch your backs Sage and Quickbooks. This will be big.
